Quite honestly if you're just towing to the capacity of the V6, then the P-rated tires are more than adequate. Even if you exceed the GCWR by a thousand pounds or so.... I wouldn't sweat it. Technically the E-rated tires will lower the rated towing capacity, however they are considered unsprung weight, so really only the braking performance will be affected, by an imperceptible amount.
